Kabrina- 2024 ATFO Platinum Division


This horse is part of a special training event called the Appalachian Trainer Face Off. You can learn about it on Facebook and on our website. Horses in this training event are adoptable following 100+ days of training in August at www.appalachiantrainerfaceoff.com

Adoption fees may be outdated, as a horse may have moved into training, so check us on most current fee. Horses typically adopted UTD on vaccines, dental floats, farrier care and all vet needs.

Horse Locations Typically in Appalachia, but please inquire about a horse’s specific location when you apply!


We are looking to adopt to safe homes.


A history of good horsemanship, the ability to provide sufficient care with good vet, farrier and peer references are important. If you are a first time horse owner, we will require you to board at a facility for the first year while you learn more about care. We encourage everyone to take advantage of riding lessons.


Foal adoptions require previous, established experience with youngsters.


Our adoption process makes sure you get the right horse for you – it is a no fail process for finding the right match. Apply at https://wvhorserescue.org/adopt


A little update on Kabrina thus far in her training as of week 5.

Kabrina has made remarkable progress in learning to be calm and relaxed without the other horses. When she’s with me, she’s my best buddy and shows no signs of nervousness. However, she is still very nervous when left alone, i.e. without me or other horses and we are continuing to work on her self managing stress.

Her kind personality often gets overshadowed by her initial uncertainty, but her intelligence shines through as she learns quickly. We’ve been doing great with walking and trotting, and today, she took her first canter steps!

At first, Kabrina was reluctant to take the bridle and was grumpy under saddle. However, she quickly learned to trust me and see me as her partner.

She’s still working on worming and taking her ulcer guard, but she improves every day. As we continue to work on these areas, we are also going to begin learning how to carry herself under saddle. Gaining weight is still a work in progress.
